Israeli militia commander fights to protect Kiev. He calls his troops “the Blue Helmets of Maidan,” but brown is the color of the headgear worn by Delta — the nom de guerre of the commander of a Jewish-led militia force that participated in the Ukrainian revolution. Under his helmet, he also wears a kippah. Get The Times of Israel's Daily Edition by email and never miss our top stories Free Sign up! Delta, a Ukraine-born former soldier in the Israel Defense Forces, spoke to JTA Thursday on condition of anonymity.

He explained how he came to use combat skills he acquired in the Shu’alei Shimshon reconnaissance battalion of the Givati infantry brigade to rise through the ranks of Kiev’s street fighters. He has headed a force of 40 men and women — including several fellow IDF veterans — in violent clashes with government forces. Several Ukrainian Jews, including Rabbi Moshe Azman, one of the country’s claimants to the title of chief rabbi, confirmed Delta’s identity and role in the still-unfinished revolution. “It’s bullshit. Steiner1776 : #Ukraine #Kiev mob is smashing ... Ukraine, Arab Spring, Cold War II and Price Wars Hardly Disguised. Ukraine, Kiev’s Maidan Square protests, the current US versus Russia mess, all this is about gas and profit, and nothing else.

When US President Barack Obama began the campaign to “punish” Vladimir Putin and Russia over interference in Ukraine, we all should have known there was more to the story. And there is. As it turns out, Ukraine’s violence, and most of the unrest abroad in fact, is a competition in between huge investment partners, gas companies like Exxon Mobile, and Russia’s Gazprom. As for the people, the public? They are just collateral damage, pawns or meaningless in a worldwide corporate game for profit.

The Obama administration, and almost all the western governments are involved in one way or other, are fighting a price war over gas against Russia.

Teile der Demonstranten haben sich bewaffnet, rücken in Richtung Regierungsgebäude vor. In einzelnen Trupps versuchen die Demonstranten, auf die Instituts-Straße zu gelangen. Diese Frage beschäftigt die Kiewer bis heute, zu Hunderten kommen sie täglich an den Platz des Massakers. Als wir ankommen, sechs Wochen danach, ist anscheinend noch nicht einmal die grundsätzliche Beweisaufnahme abgeschlossen. Oleg Machnitzki, Generalstaatsanwalt Ukraine (Übersetzung MONITOR): „Mit dem heutigen Tag klagt die Staatsanwaltschaft 12 Mitglieder der Spezialeinheit Berkut des Mordes an friedlichen Demonstranten an. Die neue Regierung sagt also, die alte Regierung Janukowitsch wäre für das Blutbad verantwortlich. Doch was geschah wirklich am 20 Februar? Aber welche Beweise gibt es dafür?

Indeed, the German newspaper apparently claim that the American mercenaries are directing and coordinating the attacks by the fascist Right Sector militia. In any event, even if the U.S. is not directly responsible for the massacres, we are certainly indirectly responsible. After all, the U.S. is backing neo-Nazis in Ukraine (and see this). The bolstering of Ukraine’s ultra-right began in 2004, when the United States directly funded and organized the “Orange Revolution. The Guardian would admit in its 2004 article, “US campaign behind the turmoil in Kiev,” that: …while the gains of the orange-bedecked “chestnut revolution” are Ukraine’s, the campaign is an American creation, a sophisticated and brilliantly conceived exercise in western branding and mass marketing that, in four countries in four years, has been used to try to salvage rigged elections and topple unsavoury regimes.

What are we doing in Ukraine, who is doing it, why are they doing it and for whose benefit? Simple questions but to answer then, even to begin to answer them, we have to take a step back from the official drivel of championing democracy, respecting the will of the people and protecting the integrity of established national borders. We are always told, these days, that our interventions in other countries are motivated by the purest of concerns. Sometimes mention might be made of ‘national interests’. But are the interests that we intervene to protect really ‘national’, that is pertaining to and benefiting us all as a nation?

Or are they more likely to be the interests of a smaller group of people? Such factions do, of course, exist in places like Russia and Ukraine. The question is, do they exist, perhaps in a slightly more nuanced form, in our countries? Business Clans It turns out Ukraine is not a bad place to look.

Fontana, il mercenario italiano che combatte per Pravy Sektor. NATO's soft war on Russia. THE ROVING EYENATO's soft war on Russia By Pepe Escobar Poor NATO. Damned Soviets. The benign North Atlantic Treaty Organization has spent two decades "trying to build a partnership" with Russia. But now, "clearly the Russians have declared NATO as an adversary, so we have to begin to view Russia no longer as a partner but as more of an adversary", according to NATO deputy secretary-general Alexander Vershbow, a former US diplomat/ Pentagon employee. The hot lava irony of a Pentagon hack carping about "Russia clearly trying to re-impose hegemony" is enough to put the Vesuvius to shame. NATO - still in the process of being epically humiliated on a daily basis by a bunch of Pashtuns with Kalashnikovs in Afghanistan - is now considering "new defensive measures" to deter "evil" Russia from "aggression" against NATO members, mostly the Baltic states.

Rubbish. Meanwhile, adults are talking, unlike the Obama administration's proponents of the juvenile delinquent school of diplomacy. Saudi Arabia Relocating Takfiri Fighters from Syria to Ukraine.

If the report is true and not a Shia propaganda piece, this would not be the first time foreign fighters were transported into conflict zones for the purpose of chaos and destabilization. Source: ABNA “A large number of terrorist Takfiri fighters in Syria, who bear Saudi and Chechnian nationalities and receive financial and military backup from the Saudi intelligence agency, have been transferred to the Ukrainian capital, Kiev, on several planes to help the Ukrainian army in its fight against the pro-Russian population,” an Arab security official told FNA on Sunday on the condition of anonymity due to the secrecy of the issue.

A pro-unity demonstration, which included nationalists and football fans, ran into a rally preaching greater autonomy for the regions. Gunfire was heard in Odessa's downtown on Friday as two rival rallies met, police having failed to draw them apart.

Over 2,000 protesters pelted each other with Molotov cocktails and smoke grenades. Local police reported that four people were killed in the stand-off, and at least one of them died due to a gun-shot wound. It all started as around 1,500 supporters of the Kiev authorities gathered at Sobornaya Square in central Odessa. Some of the people in the group were wearing the ultra-nationalist Right Sector movement insignia. The procession was then confronted by several hundred pro-federalization activists. Ukrainian Crisis Was Always About Containing Russia. A secret no more, NATO's continued existence is hegemonic in nature - its meddling in Ukraine an act of war against Russia. May 1, 2014 (Tony Cartalucci - LD) - To careful and honest observers of the events unfolding in Ukraine, it was clear from the beginning that the US and EU through NATO were creating unrest in an attempt to foster regime change in Kiev.

They had done so already, admittedly according to the Guardian which would admit in its 2004 article, “US campaign behind the turmoil in Kiev,” that: …while the gains of the orange-bedecked “chestnut revolution” are Ukraine’s, the campaign is an American creation, a sophisticated and brilliantly conceived exercise in western branding and mass marketing that, in four countries in four years, has been used to try to salvage rigged elections and topple unsavoury regimes.

NATO is preparing for "any threat that might arise," an air command general said in Estonia on Wednesday (April 30) where the alliance was officially turning an air base into the Baltic states' second NATO hub.

Amari Air Base will be used for NATO's air policing mission in the Baltic states and is intended as "a message that says, we are not alone, NATO is one strong alliance and we protect each other," according to Estonian Prime Minister Taavi Roivas. "It's good to have deterrence, good to have clear and visible presence," Roivas said in light of the crisis in Ukraine. Amari Air Base, which has undergone an extensive reconstruction project, was opened in 2011 and is located some 40 kilometres southwest of the capital Tallinn.

As of May 1, four Danish Air Force F-16 fighter jets will start their Baltic air policing mission. NATO Air Command General Frank Gorenc of the U.S. A total of 12 NATO planes will participate in air policing missions in the Baltics, according to military officials. Sunday 4/27/2014 - Tarpley Points Out Fake-OSCE Observers Are Actually NATO Military Officers. Ukraine, Chevron, Condi Rice and shale gas ... join the dots - Comment. In Ukraine, Chevron's deal continues a long tradition of intermarriage between 'national' and corporate interests under the guise of national security. Everybody's got an opinion about the 'showdown' with Russia. Some say it's about freedom and the right to self-determination. Some say it's about standing up to aggression and halting a dictator's march. Some say it's about the future of everything-from Syria to North Korea to Iran's nuclear program - and, according to Sen.

Lindsey Graham, it all stems from Obama's failure to kill the people who killed Americans at Benghazi. But the most-revealing voice in the chorus is Condi Rice. Her nostalgic, "Baby, It's a Cold War Outside" ditty on the "Ukrainian Problem" came just two days after a Teflon-coated Henry Kissinger opined about the "art of establishing priorities" in his own Ukraine-themed op-ed for the Post.

'King' Kong goes "toe to toe with the Rooskies" and flies his rogue B52 nuclear bomber to a target in Russia, it's left to General 'Buck' Turgidson to reassure the President. Strike first, says the general, and "you got no more than 10 to 20 million killed, tops. " President Merkin Muffley: "I will not go down in history as the greatest mass-murderer since Adolf Hitler.

In 1964, the year Strangelove was made, "the missile gap" was the false flag.

US brings Europe to Brink of War over Ukraine – Intentionally. The situation in Ukraine continues escalating. A military operation against pro-reform protesters in southeastern Ukraine, launched by Kiev, is tearing the country apart and forced Russia’s move to heighten security at its border. US Secretary of State, John Kerry, threatens that “the window to change course is closing” while additional troops are deployed to Lithuania. Using discredited “evidence” prompts some observers to doubt Kerry’s “wisdom”. Don’t, said a German analyst who reiterates that the US is systematically pushing Europe into a crisis for which the US has planned for decades.

Thursday, US Secretary of State, John Kerry, issued a stark warning addressed to Moscow, saying that Russia must act immediately to help de-escalate the crisis in Ukraine or face more sanctions. “The window to change course is closing. “We know in this situation who our real friends are who are coming to help. ..
